Great reproduction part. A must for getting vehicle original like the day it was sold, and holding vacuum for the lights and engine efficiency.

Most Cougar owners don't realize how many things in our cats rely on proper vacuum to operate. Replacing a faulty check valve might save you hours of troubleshooting every vacuum system one at a time.

I have a 1971 Ranchero with the hideaway headlights. I found the car in a field where it had been resting not-so-comfortably for 11 years. Got it up and running, replaced the specific headlight switch for the hideaway lights and was amazed that the headlight doors operated perfectly; but that was only when the car/truck was running and had vacuum. As soon as you turned off the engine, the headlight doors slowly creaked up.

Met a guy at a car show this summer with an perfect Cougar Eliminator. He said that 90% of the time, the hideaway problem was caused by the check valve. I order this one up and it fixed the problem, at least for 12 hours or so the doors stay shut. This isn't a big problem for me- I just don't like coming out from an errand to the parking lot and seeing the headlight doors raised Next step is to start replacing the ancient vacuum lines to see if the doors will stay shut even longer. I've heard that even if you overhaul the entire system, they won't stay shut indefinitely unless the vehicle is started every once in awhile.

I’ve been waiting for this part to come available again for quite some time. My tilt away steering has been intermittent for a couple years and stopped working all together 6 months ago. I have tried several generic check valve and none worked well. I finally got this new repro piece. 5 mins later it’s installed and my tilt away has been working EVERY TIME for a month now.

Headlights did not work with engine off--found that although reservoir held vacuum, my check valve was not allowing air flow on the double nipple side of the valve. Installed this and now my headlight doors operate whether the engine is running or not. Looks identical to the original part. Also replaced my tilt away check valve too just to ensure future proper operation and no leaks.
